YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, you’re not going to believe this: there are already wolves among us. Right now. They’re called “dogs,” and we bred them into blind subservience over the course of a few generations. Many of them, however, are capable of reducing humans to blubbering piles of incoherent baby babble with a simple wag of the tail or awkward pawing attempt at a handshake. Who, in this equation, is really man, and who is beast? It’s a chilling thou– oh man look at this puppy! Was I talking about something? Oh hm, episode two of Telltale’s Fables series, The Wolf Among Us, won’t be out until sometime early next year. Bummer.
Telltale made the announcement after revealing the first couple screenshots of the new episode, which include the ever-scheming Jack of Jack and the Beanstalk fame and a seedy underground Fable club called Pudding & Pie. Episode two is “close to completion,” but it’s still got a bit of a ways to go yet – at least, by Telltale standards.
“We wanted to thank everyone for playing the first chapter in The Wolf Among Us, and ask for your patience as the team works very hard this month to finalize what is shaping up to be another episode full of surprises. We’re anticipating another update on its ETA for release very soon after the holidays, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue this series with all of you.”
So early 2014, in other words. It makes sense, too, given that Telltale has stated that its plan is to alternate months with Wolf Among Us and Walking Dead episodes. For reference, the first episode of season two of The Walking Dead is coming out later this month.
But will Wolf Among Us episode two be as wolfamongous (my new favorite superlative, which can only be correctly pronounced in stereotypical surfer accent, followed by the word “brah”) as the first? Here’s hoping. In the meantime, you can sate big-bad-wolf-like appetite (for wolves) with this fat, spoilery chat about the first episode between Graham, Alec, and Adam. There might be wolves among us, but there is also intrigue. It, too, is everywhere.
